Advanced Technology

The center is now home to the Analytical Imaging and Modeling Center which has the ability to capture images of your child’s condition in 2D, 3D and 4D. This enhancement allows the team of physicians to better plan for surgery and to ensure positive outcomes. The technology will also help the Center with ongoing research of pediatric plastic surgery procedures.

The Imaging Center, along with a world-recognized staff of physicians, makes the reconstructive plastic surgery program at Children’s Health℠ one of the most advanced in the country.
